Great views of LA and Hollywood sign

Get there early or be prepared to walk as parking is very busy. Best way to get there is either by a local bus or a tour bus. Offers great views

We climbed several overlooks while ascending to the observatory. Several cut-throughs exist which allow you to avoid walking through the tunnel! Heavily trafficated.

This large urban park is well worth several visits. Go to the Visitor Center first to get a map, just ignore the rude clerk who could care less you are there! Hopefully, she is a volunteer and not being paid! We hiked the Bird Trail and saw some interesting specimens, even a coyote. The Autry Western Heritage Museum was the... More

Griffith Park is located right before the observatory and offers some amazing view of the Hollywood sign and the city. You also get a great trekking experience with multiple trails.

This park is a tremendous asset for LA and a great place to hike, see the views from on high and visit the planetiterium. The scenic walk around the planetiterium gives you great views of the Holywood sign, Holywood and downtown Los Angeles. The hiking trails are great but you need to be in decent shape . Don't forget to... More

My Wife's suggestion. Never heard of it or The Greek Theartre,at the entrance to the park. Wonderful. Stunning houses line the road leading in. We trekked up to the Observatory,and on arrival,got a superb view of the famous HOLLYWOOD Sign. Came down a different trail,a hazy view of LA,in the distance

As a local resident- and well travelled...this is not a gorgeous park in our city. It is a park. It has horse back riding stables, and barbecue picnic areas (Ferndale section) It is a kids travel town train ride. It is accessible, roads for cars and rather large. It is connected to Forrest Lawn cemetery. It is not a gorgeous... More
